Teas in this collection include:
Da Hong Pao (Oolong tea): Also known as Big Red Robe, this storied oolong produces a cup that is brisk and complex with both a roasted profile and hints of stone fruit.

Emperor's Pu-Erh (Pu-Erh tea): Bold and memorable, this golden tippy pu'erh makes a cup worthy of royalty. This tea brews up a deep coffee color and is full-bodied. It is often described as elemental due to its aged quality and damp soil aroma. 

Lapsang Souchong (Black tea): Traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, this superior Lapsang leaf tea comes from the Chinese province of Fujian and has a heady aroma with smoky character.

Nepali Emerald (Green tea): From one of the smallest tea growing regions in the world, comes a mild, grassy green tea that is truly meant to be treasured. The leaves are slightly curly and medium sized with both rich, green tips and silvery tips. 

Margaret's Hope Darjeeling (Black tea): Boasting a medium body with a classic floral finish, this Darjeeling is cultivated on India's famous Margaret's Hope plantation in the foothills of the snow-capped Himalayas. It is one of the world's premier teas and often referred to as the “champagne of teas.”

Yunnan White Dragon (White tea): This highly prized white tea is grown in the southwestern Chinese province of Yunnan and picked during the spring when the leaves are young. The long, twisted leaves resemble dragons and produce a cup that is very mellow in flavor.

How to Make Your TEA

How to Make Your TEA


Good tea starts with good water! We recommend using filtered or spring water for a superior tasting cup of tea. 


Different types of tea require different temperatures of water for steeping. Black teaherbals, and rooibos can handle boiling water. Green teawhite tea, and oolong require cooler water so the leaves don't get scalded - resulting in bitter flavor. Follow the temperatures below.

Black Tea: 212°F
Green Tea: 160-175°F
White Tea: 175°F
Herbal: 212°F
Rooibos: 212°F

Tea Leaves to Water Ratio

We recommend using 1tsp of leaves per 8oz of water. If you prefer a stronger cup of tea, add more tea leaves.

Steep Time

We recommend that most teas steep for 3-5 minutes. Anything that has actual tea leaves (camellia sinensis) should not exceed 5 minutes as the leaves will release more tannins resulting in a bitter flavor. Herbals and rooibos don't contain actual tea leaves and can be steeped as long as you like. 

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Bring freshly drawn water up to desired temperature according to the type of tea you're making.
  2. Scoop loose leaf tea into an infuser or T-Sac using 1tsp for each 8oz of water. (If your mug is 16oz use 2tsp. If your teapot is 45oz use 6tsp.)
  3. Place infuser or T-Sac into the mug or teapot you're going to steep the tea in and pour the hot water over the top of the leaves allowing them to swirl around and open. 
  4. Steep for 3-5 minutes according to your taste preferences.
  5. Remove infuser or T-Sac.
  6. Add milk or sugar to taste.
  7. Breathe in the aroma and enjoy!
